A - Three fingers worth of tightly packed richly textured light khaki colored head with a slightly rocky top... Solid retention... The color is a mix of brown, candied apple red, and amber... Some carbonation bubbles can be seen rising along the sides of the glass...
S - The nose is loaded with sweet dark fruits... Sweet red grapes... Dates... Perhaps even some raspberries and strawberries.... Some candied sugars... Slightly Belgian yeast notes... Some light vanilla and oak notes...
T - Dark fruits as expected... Raisins... Blueberries... Dates... Faint Belgian yeast notes... The oak and vanilla notes rise on the finish and actually provide very good balance to the overall slightly cloying sweetness...
M - On the lighter side of full bodied... Dense... Sleek and slightly sticky... Moderation is light but a bit on the harsh side... Saliva inducing...
D - A bit too intense even with a year's worth of age on it... Some solid bones, but definitely a bit rough around the edges... Not a bad beer by any means, but nothing special either...
